State of Meditation

To experience qualities of consciousness, we have to practice “Yoga and Meditation”. Meditation and Yoga are mental techniques to find inner silence (Peace). By meditation, individual awareness blooms and experiences a unique state of restful alertness, in which the body becomes deeply relaxed and the mind transcends all mental activities and experiences absolute silence. In meditation, the mind and the intellect have no work. It is a state of no-mind, no-identification of oneself. It is a world of peace, bliss and happiness.

The great sage Mahar’shi Patanjali, the father of Yoga, has given a scientific basis to Yoga. According to him, Yoga, is not a therapy, it is a discipline. A discipline is needed even when you are in good health. Today, we are increasingly turning to alternative medicine. As a result, practice of Yoga has become limited to a few persons. Yoga can be practiced by anyone irrespective of age, caste, community, religion, faith or belief. Yoga is not a temporal practice; it is a life long process. The Yoga-Sutra has clearly stated that Yoga must be practiced consistently with complete devotion, perseverance and regularity.

To make Yoga accessible to everyone whether he or she is a homemaker, office goer, student, factory worker or an agriculturist, Yoga should be viewed as being independent of an ascetic lifestyle. One can enjoy the bliss and peace of meditation without having to adopt an ascetic way of life. In any case, spiritual life is not restricted to the confines of monasteries, hermitages of ashrams.

Today, we are always short of time. We talk of ‘sparing’ some time for important activities. As meditation is a valuable activity, proven by science, complaining about of lack of time is irrelevant. Yoga can help find the solution to every problem because it helps us to develop a higher state of consciousness.
